Snowman in August...

I've been waiting to get my hands on this snowman set - and today was the day.  I've used the Mojo Monday Sketch - except I flipped it so that I could have the little birds rolling along the bottom.

I've used a new "Snow Burst" Embossing Folder from the upcoming Holiday Mini.  I'll purchase ANY embossing folder I think - I just love when the paper has texture!  While looking at the card just now, I've realized that I neglected to put the rhinestone into the centre of the snowflake which Snowman is holding - so you'll have to use your imagination!  I will be adding it for sure!

And now - I want to give a HUMUNGOUS THANK YOU to Lesley Croghan from Always Playing with Paper!  She offered to help me with creating a new SU banner for my blog - and then she surprised me with the design you see above - and I LOVE it!!!!  Thank you, Thank you, Thank you - Lesley!!!!!!

I accomplished an awful lot today - ya know when you start one job and it sort of migrates into an additional I cleaned the linen cupboard, the back entryway and took labels off old wine bottles.  (My husband should be bottling some time before the school year starts again)  I had to go pick up the quilts that were at the cleaners because nights are getting a bit cooler this week - if you keep the windows open.

Tomorrow - who knows what's in store!  But I'm ready for anything, and I'm sure some crafting will be included!  Hope you're able to include some crafting in your day - and thanks for stopping by for a visit.
